Exciting news from one of our partners, Tessara, as they have officially launched two new products at Asian Fruit Logistica Bangkok. Two new sulphur pad products for table grapes, called Uvays Vivo and Berrisys, for the blueberry industry which extends the shelf life of blueberries during storage and transportation. 

Read more below about this exciting launch.

Tessara manufactures sulphur dioxide laminated sheets (sulphur pads); the company specialises in fresh science by providing post-harvest solutions that maximise the shelf life of valuable fresh produce to minimise food waste. 

“Our sulphur dioxide laminated sheets are scientifically designed for individual crops: table grapes, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and cut flowers.”

Tessara’s production facility is BRC accredited with an AA rating and operates 24/7, 5 to 7 days a week. They have approximately 200 staff, including representatives and agents in key markets in Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, and North and South America. Tessara offers an innovative range of products that increases the shelf life during post-harvest storage and transportation. 

“…Our focus is about keeping fresh produce fresher for longer.”

“Our sulphur dioxide laminated sheets are scientifically designed for individual crops: table grapes, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and cut flowers. All our products are for post-harvest application; they sterilise the fruit and destroy fungal pathogens, mainly Botrytis cinerea, a common cause of post-harvest rot during storage. Our focus is about keeping fresh produce fresher for longer.” 

Tessara’s range of products includes UVASYS and UVASYS VIVO, the fully recyclable sulphur pad for table grapes. In addition, BERRISYS and BERRISYS LITE are for berries – blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and FLORASYS– for cut flowers. 

“A smart change in your post-harvest system can significantly affect your valuable crop’s shelf life. We enjoy discussing everything post-harvest to maximise shelf life. 

Both products are available and used in South Africa and the UK, with Turkey and Georgia following suit. In Australia, the APVMA registration for Berrisys is pending for December 2022. We eagerly await this approval to assist the Australian industry with its exports and domestic market opportunities for APVMA registration. Stay tuned and contact us if you have any questions regarding this exciting new product.
